TURN THE VOLUME UP

Love this podcast, but I have to max out my headphone volume to hear the conversation (I listen to my music at about 50% headphone volume. If you can turn up the mic volume that would be great. Also where’s Stephanie Izard, Spike, and Tom

Listen to it for the guests...

Often I’m excited about the guests, so I’ll listen despite the fact that the title of this show is exactly what Richard has become. He’s all broed out and it’s painful how hard he tries [to be cool, smart, etc] sometimes. I’ve noticed this transformation on Top Chef too... the cuts to the ads are also jarring and seem timed to trick people into thinking that they’re part of the conversation, which is irritating and very off-putting.

Great open.

The open to the Nina Compton pod was terrific. I would listen to a whole show of Richard & Jazmin just talking about life and family.

Great content, great guests.

But the transitions to sponsors and the constant interruptions are off-putting. I love Richard, and have followed his career but I’d love more focus on the special guest.

This Podcast may be better than Crack(Shack)

Ever since watchin Blais sling hot dishes on Top Chef and going on a “food-cation”, from the East Coast, to eat at J&I and Crack Shack, I’ve become a big fan of Richard. J&I was hands down the best meal experience my wife and I ever had (we even bought the kitchen drinks) I am not industry, but love to follow the food/restaurant world, and Blais (of course Jazmin too!!) does a fantastic job of keeping the interest of the listener by balancing industry and fandom. Every week i look forward to my long commute to listen to this podcast! Richard and Jazmin are super entertaining and great interviewers that tackle such a multitude of topics not limited to just food/cooking without getting too topical (leaving out the things like politics, religion, etc). It is a great escape into the mind of Blais and other chefs/industry people that makes you hungry for more! Brian H

Filled the Void

This podcast has been good to me for a long time now so this review is long overdue. This podcast quickly filled the void that Go Fork Yourself and The Alton Browncast left when they rode off into the sunset. I love how curious Richard and Jazmin are about not only the new, innovative creators, but equally their colleagues in their space. The conversations are typically fun and lighthearted, but the hosts are not afraid to tackle a serious issue from time to time. Jazmin is always on point with social responsibility which I greatly appreciate her insight, and bringing awareness to these causes. I’m here for Richard’s awkward moments as well. Cheers!

LOVE THIS

Being lucky enough to be stationed in San Diego and visit your restaurants, I just want to say I’m a huge fan. I really love that you all sprinkle in the importance of healthy living as well. I’m a pro body builder with a vegan husband- so you can imagine what it’s like in our household! Thanks for the info- the behind the scenes tidbits- the laughs-the cardio distraction- and the fond memories of San Diego! Your husband/wife team is awesome!

One of the good guys

I’ve said it before, RB is one of the good guys. His love of food, family and what he does so well-cooking- is contagious and admirable. Keep that good stuff coming. The world needs so much more of what you’ve got cooking.

Walking In: Order Fire “Starving For Attention”

With his podcast, Chef Blais continues to deliver his signature dose of the expectedly unexpected. From the first episode I listened to featuring Chef Maneet Chauhan, it became clear that this wasn’t just another interview podcast featuring a celebrity in the subject. Chef Blais seamlessly avoids a common pitfall in this form of content: interviews that feel forced, over scripted, and disingenuous. The episodes flow like a natural conversation you yourself would like to have with the guests featured. Blending in his own personality and honesty as a certified heavyweight in his field, Blais clearly displays the same care and flavor with his guests as in his dishes: playful, intriguing, honest, and leaving you wanting more. The only thing better is to secure yourself a seat at his San Diego standout, Juniper & Ivy, to taste it yourself.

Listen to your guests!

Richard has great guests but constantly interrupts them while interviewing. Always interjecting his own personal stories. Learn. To. Listen. To. Your. Guests.

Make Dronuts Happen

I’ve been in a long distance relationship for 10 years. I drive an 1 hour and 15 minutes (2 1/2 hours round trip) 3 days a week to my partner’s house. It is usually after work or early in the morning so my podcasts keep me entertained and more importantly alert. Lol I absolutely love this one. I’m obsessed with food TV and the behind the scenes stories that are told on this podcast are epic. I always learn something and a lot of times get introduced to chefs I’m unfamiliar with. If you are a good fan I highly recommend Starving for Attention. PS never stop making smoked biscuits at Juniper and Ivy and so happy Crack Shack is in Vegas...lol...I’m there more then SD ❤️

Starving for More

Sure, the title of this review is kinda lame, BUT, I can honestly say you’ll be entertained, informed, and be presented with some truly thought provoking subject matter. All through the lens of chefs, cooking, entertainment, or the hospitality industry as a whole. Though, the true hero of the show...JB. Jazmin Blais. Just outstanding chemistry between her and Richard. Don’t pass this pod up.
